Plan Your Trip: Miami International Boat Show Feb. 11-15

Calling all boating enthusiasts! The Progressive Insurance Miami International Boat Show is back Feb. 11-15, 2016.


New this year, the Boat Show is taking place at the Miami Marine Stadium Park and Basin on the Rickenbacker Causeway. Near Key Biscayne and situated just a few miles from Downtown Miami, the new location is sure to be a great one and preparations have been underway for months. The Strictly Sail Miami portion of the show will take place at Miamarina at Bayside in Downtown.


The historic Miami Marine Stadium will provide a stunning backdrop and 180-degree views of Biscayne Bay. It’s the perfect place to board and browse thousands of new boats–from offshore racing vessels to sailboats to yachts. There will also be boating lessons, daily seminars, and a chance to test the waters on stand-up paddleboards. If this makes you want a boat of your own to take to the water, then you may want to check out some used boats for sale in Fort Myers, or wherever you’re located, so the next time summer comes around you’ll be out there on those clear blue waters with your family or on a solo trip.


The best part? There will be free water taxi and shuttle service. So you don’t have to drive and there’s no need to wait around in traffic!
